Movie Info

Avant-garde, experimental and misogynist in the bargain, this oddball film is about 17 men named Frank who make their way through Helsinki in a commandeered subway car. Their goal is to reach the symbolically peaceful, perfect coastal town of Eira. Along the way they perform some pop music, one of them is shot, they split up, and finally two manage to reach the sea. Once there, they discover that the water is filled with dead fish, and a decrepit rowboat somehow becomes an object of contention.

Audience Reviews for Calamari Union

early kaurismaki and it's pretty amusing, like a completely absurd gangster film, almost totally improvised. brilliant in it's way but i prefer his later works

Calamari Union is an oddball anarchic rock n' roll b-movie of the highest calibre. A precursor to Leningrad Cowboys for sure and Kaurismäki at his most reckless. It's brilliant.
